The project in a few words

Wander at Ease is a youth exchange program designed to inspire a new generation of travellers to embrace the art of slow travel and cultivate a deeper connection with the world around them. Over the Erasmus+ exchange, participants from Spain, Italy, France, Romania, and Germany will embark on a journey of exploration, reflection, and cultural exchange, guided by the principles of mindfulness, sustainability, and community engagement.

Main Objectives

  • Promote Intercultural Dialogue: Facilitate meaningful interactions and exchanges among participants from diverse cultural backgrounds, fostering mutual understanding, respect, and empathy.
  • Empower Youth Leadership: Provide a platform for young people to take ownership of their learning journey, develop leadership skills, and drive positive change in their communities.
  • Cultivate Environmental Awareness: Raise awareness about the environmental impact of travel and empower participants to
    adopt sustainable travel habits, minimizing their ecological footprint.
  • Encourage Personal Growth: Create opportunities for self-reflection, personal development, and the cultivation of mindfulness through immersive travel experiences and experiential learning activities.
  • Foster Global Citizenship: Inspire participants to become responsible global citizens, committed to promoting social justice, cultural diversity, and environmental sustainability.
  • Promote Inclusivity and Diversity: Celebrate the richness of human diversity and create a safe, inclusive space where all participants feel valued, respected, and empowered to share their perspectives and experiences.
  • Disseminate Good Practices: Encourage participants to become ambassadors for slow travel and sustainable tourism in their communities, sharing their knowledge and experiences to inspire others to embrace a more mindful approach to travel.
  • Contribute to the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs): Align the objectives of the exchange with the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals, particularly Goal 11 (Sustainable Cities and Communities), Goal 12 (Responsible Consumption and Production), and Goal 17 (Partnerships for the Goals)
